Pleckgate students enjoyed cycling, futsal and team-building as outdoor pursuits company Sporting NRG came into school.
The Blackburn business work in partnership with schools and colleges to deliver a range of activities and the pupils at Lancashire Telegraph School of the Year 2016 enjoyed the challenges.
As well as safe cycling and futsal, the Pleckgate students had to work together to cross a ‘bridge’ and work in teams to pick up an item with ropes.
“You really have to think about it,” said Year Eight student Uzair Mahmood, of the team building challenges.
“We want students to get an all-round education at Pleckgate and days like this help develop their social, recreational and sporting skills,” said Headteacher Mr Cocker. “The students embraced it and, for some, it was a chance to try something they had never done before and also thinking in a different way. They loved it.”
Pleckgate High School is hoping to put on more of these events and has been boosted with a bumper entry for Year Sevens for the 2017/8 school year.
